is there anyone out there ;) i'm talking about a nono poster (the paper form)

hey i'm getting a bit lonely here these few days!

just wondering if anyone would be interested... if i'm getting this pic scanned and enlarged:

http://www.pbase.com/vtp/image/4181162

would anyone be interested to get a paper version (i.e. poster) of up to A2 (about 16x24") size?

i haven't started doing that yet but just trying to gauge the level of interest out there

let me know or pm me

Re: is there anyone out there ;) i'm talking about a nono poster (the paper form)

Sorry, Via, I've been so busy these last days...no time for anything.
I didn't see all arnaud's matches, I would have loved to see the finals, no time neither, that's sad...
Well, personly I'm not interested by a paper version of this great pic, but thank you though for the proposition.

Arnaud plays in Orleans this week. Not very exciting, but he needs playing I guess, and it's at home so I can understand.
No news in l'equipe, but when I get some ones, I put them here.

Re: is there anyone out there ;) i'm talking about a nono poster (the paper form)

i haven't quoted for paper yet... guess i'll try to get better quality paper, without going into photo paper.

i know... i just sold some photos at ebay and it was such a hassle i don't think i will ever want to do it again. not to mention... paypal sux, and you're hearing that from me!

i guess i'll only do a few posters if any arnaud fans want them... i'm afraid there isn't much of a market for arnaud out there and basically just give them for free! i swap things with other fans anyway, i know i'll get something in return

how do you find posters chewy, if not over the net?? don't tell me you're happy enough with what the tennis mag gives you

marine i know you're busy.

hahaha...im . d only one on my wall right now's from australian tennis mag (but was ages ago, whn i first fell in lov with anything tennis related)
honestly im not happy with it(its hewitt no offence to any1, but not really my fav ) i put it up because its sentimental value(first proper poster i got...almost a2 size).
i got to say, the pic u offered is a hell lot more better.

but i do hav other source to get tennis poster, just havnt d oppurtunity to go to those places at d moment. alto i doubt i would find specific posters, usually just d most popular ones(maria, federer, nadal.etc)n alto its pretty good quality n offer diff material other than paper stock, they r mostly piraded copies, not official ones.

Re: is there anyone out there ;) i'm talking about a nono poster (the paper form)

The picture is great Via. And it's nice of you to offer to make some posters out of it. (Gosh, had i known that tennis fans were so nice i'd have come earlier to these forums rather than cinema or music message boards ^^)

Anyways, i dunno if i'd want one. I'd feel a bit embarrassed since i don't know you much and i know i wouldn't have much to get for you in exchange.

But yeah, it's nice of you

i think most posters offered by small operators out there, are pirated from some photographer's photos, or from some other printed material... with tennis stars, i hardly know of any official posters anyway.

but even with pirated stuff, i don't know a place where they sell tennis posters. i must be behind the times ... do you live in australia?

yeah another thing is, it isn't easy to get posters of players other than the biggest names in the sport.

if you're looking for photos thats a lot easier... i mean of course, you still have to buy on the net! but so many sites are offering photographs these days, and they are from real photographers. (not me )

ahhh... if you have some interest in common, you don't have to know me for a lifetime

don't music or movie fans swap things, like mp3's and movie files
